Ceramic tile flooring has been a popular material for interior and exterior decoration for thousands of years. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors and glazes and can be used plain, decorated or as part of a mosaic.

Ceramic tiles are a popular choice of flooring due to their aesthetic appeal, as well as their durability and easy care. When ceramic tile flooring is properly installed, it will outperform and outlast nearly any other flooring products created for the same application. Glazed ceramic tile flooring resists stains, odors and dirt and can be cleaned with a damp mop or common household cleaners.

All our stores carry Grade III and Grade IV glazed ceramic tile flooring which are extremely scratch resistant. You no longer need to worry about a cut or tear like you do with other floor coverings.

Modern technologies have added to the range of shades, finishes and shapes available. In addition, there has been a resurgence of more traditional looks with terracotta and other natural unglazed finishes.

Additional benefits of ceramic tile flooring include:

  • Cleanliness: Environmentally friendly, ceramic tile is manufactured using natural materials and does not retain odors, allergens or bacteria.
  • Versatility: Modern ceramic manufacturing technology has created a virtually limitless number of colors, sizes, styles, shapes and textures that can add rich beauty and character to any room in your home.
  • Fire Resistance: Ceramic tile doesn’t burn or emit toxic fumes. Even hot kitchen pans or skillets can’t scorch or melt the surface of glazed ceramic tile!
  • Water Resistance: Most glazed ceramic tile has a dense body that permits little or no moisture accumulation.

In short, ceramic tile flooring is a timeless, luxurious and durable flooring choice that offers a unique opportunity for self-expression because of its detail, flexibility and sheer beauty.

From simple terra cotta tiles to highly decorated individual tiles that create intricate mosaics, ceramic tile offers a level of versatility that makes the possibilities truly endless.

Stone floors are natural, beautiful, and always stylish. The naturally cool, hard surface is ideal for warm climates and does not harbor dust or allergens. Before choosing a specific type of stone, educate yourself to find the best fit.

Many of the upsides to stone flooring coincide with that of tile in that it is easy to clean, it’s fire resistant, there are versatile options and most are water resistant as well. The options we carry for stone flooring are so versatile, you can choose beautiful finishes for inside and outside! Our flooring options would complete a beautiful outdoor patio or barbecue space, as well as bring life to any room or space inside your home or business. Stone is so much more than dark slabs of material. 

The amount and size of pores in a stone, referred to as porosity, affects its strength and stain resistance. If you plan to install stone in a high-traffic area, such as a kitchen, mudroom, or family bath, you’ll want to choose a hard, dense stone that is nonporous, such as granite or slate. Softer, more porous stones, such as marble, limestone, and travertine, require regular applications of sealants and frequent cleaning to prevent staining and pitting.

Stone Types
You can find natural stone in an incredible range of colors and patterns. As with gemstones, rare colors and patterns cost the most. Here are some characteristics of the popular varieties:

Granite 
With hundreds of available varieties, this in-demand stone can be flamed for slip-resistant texture in busy kitchens and bathrooms.

Limestone 
Known for its natural, earthen appearance, limestone is formed from sedimentary materials, such as coral and shells. Unlike some stones, when limestone is cut from the same slab, it has little color variation from tile to tile. The stone can be sanded perfectly smooth for a soothing, refined look, or machine-tumbled for a worn look. If you use limestone in a room where acidic liquids might spill, consider sealing this porous material every few years.

Marble
This porous stone is a sophisticated choice for formal spaces but is easily scratched. Slabs or tiles come in many colors, based on where they were quarried. Some varieties of marble are harder and more stain-resistant than others, so ask your dealer if the marble you are considering will perform well for the use you have in mind

Slate 
A rustic classic available in geometric pieces and irregular shapes, slate is usually found in dark gray, soft red, and medium green.

Travertine 
This crystallized, partially metamorphosed limestone is often mistaken for marble.

Stone Tiles
Stone tiles have been used in home interiors for thousands of years. They are made by slicing boulders and slabs of rock into thin squares or rectangles. The appearance of stone varies from tile to tile due to veining, natural imperfections, and even fossils. Color palettes also vary by the type of stone and location of the quarry.
